Abstract

When an image capturing apparatus connected to a LAN, which is connectable a plurality of terminals, transmits image data obtained by reading an image on an original to a desired terminal on the LAN, the read image is confirmed by, e.g., previewing the image using a display device placed in the vicinity of the image capturing apparatus, and is then transmitted to an actual destination. With this control, an image of a desired format can be easily transmitted even from an image capturing apparatus having no satisfactory image display function to a desired destination.
